The unity that can come out of sports [Champions League Anthem]

Sports is about winners and losers, one is rejoicing whilst the other is crying, but Sports can also bring some unity between people.

Yes, Sports by nature today is rigged by many aspects, it’s unfair and all, but let’s dedicate a few minutes to look at the bright side that comes out of it.

Check out for instance the UEFA Champions League Anthem:

This is definitely an amazing piece of work. The lyrics of the song are:

Ce sont les meilleures équipes
Es sind die allerbesten Mannschaften
The main event
Die Meister
Die Besten
Les grandes équipes
The champions

Une grande réunion
Eine grosse sportliche Veranstaltung
The main event
Ils sont les meilleures
Sie sind die Besten
These are the champions
Die Meister
Die Besten
Les grandes équipes
The champions

Die Meister
Die Besten
Les grandes équipes
The champions

And this video shows how this song was created in the first place:

It’s definitely nice to see such a top quality in 3 different languages – French, German and English (English is the least used language in the song composed by Tony Britten, who’s British, although there aren’t many lyrics/words in it – and it still makes it beautiful).

So yeah … it’s always good to take a break from attacking Sports and looking also on the bright side of things – we definitely don’t like how sports is/are being rigged today, but there’s definitely a lot to like about things like this piece, that make Sports so much beautiful and give a hope that maybe things will go back to normal one day also in aspects of how the game(s) is/are being played.
